BELARUS:Government Renews Pressure on Baptists
The Belarus government has recently issued fines to the Baptist Council of Churches for "unregistered activity."According to Forum 18 News,this increased pressure is aimed at pressuring Baptists to register their church activity.Forum reported,"The Council's congregations reject state registration in post-Soviet countries,believing that it leads to government interference. "Nikolai Varushin, who recently faced persecution told Forum,["This is our path; we are prepared to suffer for our faith.We just pray that our people will remain true to the Lord."]
Pray for believers in Belarus.
Ask God to encourage them to remain courageous in the midst of increased persecution.
